My 1969 Stepside Build

ok so i guess it is time for me to start my official Build Thread on my truck

Here is the story about the truck. i graduated high school in 2007 and for my birthday/grad preasent my dad and mom bought me the truck for 1500 bucks. so from then on i have been restoreing and building my truck. the truck was orginaly a I-6 3 speed on the tree manual steering manual brakes no a/c 2wd no radio 6 lug. so i changed it over to a 5 lug 350 turbo automatic rebuilt a 327 from the ground up added power steering power brakes soon to be vintage air so here are some pics so far please ask me any questions that you have and i will answer any questions about my truck for you
